Recent weeks have been a stark reminder that stocks don't always go up. But volatility and uncertain markets can provide compelling opportunities to buy great companies at discount prices. Figuring out what those stocks are in advance can be half the battle.

On this clip from Motley Fool Live, recorded onFeb. 25, "The Wrap" host Jason Hall and Fool.com contributors Danny Vena and Lou Whiteman each share a stock that they'd buy without thinking twice if the stock fell 25%.

Jason Hall: We're leading with this theme of the 25% decline day. It's interesting because we've already seen some well-known companies, some high-quality businesses with stocks that have fallen pretty sharply. And I thought it would be interesting if we could each just talk about a stock that we'd buy without even thinking twice, that we'd buy if the stock fell 25%. Danny, you want to kick this off?
